obama and why he should be given another shot at this. michele obama presented a very personal story. we are going to talk to a congressman who had a story more than 24 hours ago. peter barnes on the floor of the democratic national convention. reporter: neil, one of the goals of the obama campaign is to try to reach across generations and we are doing that right here on the north carolina delegation. a few seats down from me, an older delegate wearing what looks to be an original top hat for john f. kennedy, caroline kennedy's uncle. the campaign, of course, trying to appeal to seniors as well as younger voters and middle-aged voters across all the ages. big decisions over the next few years. he is going to say that he wants more time and needs more time. the truth is it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades. including creating another million manufacturing jobs by 2016. neil: since it took a while to turn this ship around, you will hear a lot of references to do a job come back up 20 months. a lot of this will go into about a year af
: hi. i watched the speeches last night. i was pretty disgusted about it, how michelle obama was talking about her husband was going to help everybody, we are going to give money for people to go to school. it just seems like everybody is just waiting for handouts from them. , that's great that we want to help everybody, but the reality is our country is almost bankrupt. we are already. where are they going to get all this money to hand out to everybody? guest: well, the issue of the economy and government spending is a difficult one. that is one of the major dividers between the two campaigns. who -- where does the investment and the growth need to come from? does it come from the bottom up or the top down? that is a basic thing that voters are going to have to decide. but i think you also tapped into sentiments that are out there. a lot of people are tired of hearing more of what they may perceive as the same. i think that is part of the enthusiasm gap. people have forgotten that the government is for the people and that we ultimately have a choice. i always told my student
sense to marry michelle obama. [cheers and applause] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party.

is so appropriate. last night we heard from the san antonio mayor and michele obama in motivational terms to the key democratic constituency groups, african-americans, hispanics, women. but tonight president clinton gets the heavy lifting talking about the economy weighing down president obama with 8% unemployment, with a deficit annually over $1 trillion and with a traditional debt that's now hit $16 trillion. so what president clinton's going to do is what he did in a commercial he cut for president obama very recently in which he praised president obama's economic plans as resembling his own when he presided over the boom in the '90s. a balanced approach to deficit reduction, tax increases and spending cuts and key investments. i just talked to a senior strategist for the obama campaign who said we all know that bill clinton has his own distinctive speech making process which has to do with rewrites right up to the last minute but this aide had seen the speech. said it's not going to disappoint and precisely what democrats hope president clinton will do to tee up president obama'

. this has huge political implications as it comes after first lady michelle obama speaks to the dnc. there is a huge economic warning signal being made here. number one, $16 trillion worth of debt which means we owe more than our economy produces in any one year. our debt is bigger than our economy. secondly, we're now going to be paying close to $10 billion a week in interest alone. about a half trillion a year. 10 billion a week. up from nine billion last year. and about a quarter of that interest will be paid to foreigners. it will go out of the country. japan, china, britain, they're the three major holders of our debt. they all get about a quarter of all of this interest that is flowing and it will flow out of the country. so political impact, and a big economic danger signal too, martha. martha: we know, it was a huge focus of the rnc last week in tampa. big debt clock that loomed over the proceedings there. you simply don't hear much though about the debt from president obama. do you expect we'll hear hear anything about it at all this week? >> very little because it is a big
of their own convention and it really is sort of like a sugar high. you see somebody like michelle obama give such an incredible speech about her husband. i think anybody married to michelle obama would have gotten a bounce out of that speech. but this is not the type of thing sustainable if you have the kind of jobs numbers that president obama. we had great headlines friday morning coming out of the convention. by noon friday, all the headlines very, very negative on the jobs picture. it will be tough to sustain it. he'll have to keep pushing to keep them up. >> preceding the jobs number, anne, as we step back from the conventions, realistically, will anything that happen in either of those events have any lasting effect? >> i do think it's possible. certainly bill clinton's speech to the extent it reminded voters that these two presidents were part of the same party, they share a philosophy. there were parts of bill clinton's speech that diverged from some of the other speakers going after bain and after wall street. that was not president clinton's message. president clinton could be memo
tonight. i've got to you if tonight is essentially afterglow from michelle obama's speech or is there a separate second night agenda for the democrats here leading up to the bill clinton speech? >> rachel, it looked for awhile there there were two versions of the democratic party. there was the clinton version and the barack obama version. that was a wrong perception a lot of us had. there are, in fact, two complimentary parts to the democratic party. the clinton part and the obama part. when they are together, it is a robust political party. when they are separated by division or bad feeling, they are not a strong political party. the clinton case has to come back for obama to win. it looks like it's coming back starting tonight. >> chris, are there any substantive differences between those two parts of the party you're talking about? any differences between clinton and obama that either need to be resolved or glossed over in order to make this sort of remarriage tonight work for the president? >> i don't know if it comes down to policy, but it certainly comes down to pol
